A win! You little superstar, you!  What's in the envelope?

It makes it very easy to carry all the water I like though, Pete. Not a bad thing.

A meet up would be fab, Lit.  I could run with you on either the Tuesday or the Thursday during the day - you can push the buggy to slow you down a bit .  How well do you know Leamington?  We could do the route taking in the major parks, Newbold comyn and the canal as they probably cover the major running thoroughfare's round here.  And we could finish somewhere for lunch/drink/cake if you like?  Maybe we could persuade Lou to work from home and join us for lunch/more running?  

Skinny - it would probably be ok without icing but my physio said to ice it even if it feels ok.  I suspect I poss overdid it a little today but I'm not going to run consecutive days yet anyway.  Are you going to follow a plan?  You might have to accept you won't quite be in PB shape (although knowing you, nothing is impossible) but you'll still be able to have a good crack at it.

Been lurking again.  Far, far too much to catch up on so I'll give everyone a collective pat on the back.  Especially Lit and her international race winning.

I am very disturbed by Skinny's love for the penis and am going to leave that one there 

My 400m PB is 1.14.  

Running been going ok - ran 7 miles at the weekend, not much pain now, just have to ice it afterwards.  It's not 100% but at a stage where I can start rebuilding again.  Did 6 miles with the buggy this morning.  It really is very hot.  

Lou - please don't attempt to race Milton Keynes very hard.  I think it would be unpleasant if not dangerous.

Great racing, Tommy! Are you to leave us languishing in the bronze pit now for the heady heights of silver?

Good medalling from, DT. Was it very scenic?

Have a nice holiday, Lit.

Looking forward to the full report, Madbee. Bet you weren't really shit at all.

I spent the weekend baking (carrot cake muffins and Iced apricot loaf), rearranging children's bedrooms and a bit of running. 4 miles. Yay. Also supported at the Arden 9. Free cake afterwards makes this a must-do for all next year. Lou now owes you TWO race reports. Father's Day is no excuse.

Ah, I think I might have got that wrong, Bob .  I double checked and it was 74 seconds.  Oops.  I thought it was a bit odd.  I'd best stick to marathons.

Good racing, Tommy and Bob. I think that's what I ran for my one and only ever 400m race! Once around the track never seemed so far!

I went for an experimental (and non-physio sanctioned) run today. Run-walk was driving me crazy. So I decided to aim for about 5k and stop if it hurt. It ached to begin with and then after a mile and a quarter just stopped hurting all of a sudden. So did 3.5 miles in the end. Huffed and puffed up the hills so lost a lot of fitness. Have iced it and will see how it reacts but feeling cautiously optimistic.

Well I'm no stranger to the comeback.  But FFS.  I'm still in the middle of coming back from pregnancy, she's not even one yet!  And now I have to do another comeback.  When am I going to be able to get some consistency?! But I did remark to the physio that my PF niggles and knee tendonitis feels great!  And I've had more time to do other stuff.  So I've started doing pilates and the house is a bit more organised.  So there are upsides.

Are you all fixed now, Skinny?  Fizz said in a way a stress fracture might have been better because that tends to heal stronger whereas soft tissue leaves you with a weakness there.  So hopefully that means it shouldn't give you any grief now.

I'm considering Blenheim Palace half, Derby City half or Birmingham half.  Anyone done any of those?  Although the Derby one is new I think.  I lived in Derby for a year and had my first child there so it would be kind of nostalgic and cover some of the paces I used to run.  Blenheim's probably good for supporters/kids and scenic.  Birmingham is close but farking expensive (35 quid) which puts me off a bit.  Turkey Trot could be a possibility but I think I need something sooner to work towards.

Hello all. I've been sporadically lurking as I am not a good (or patient) patient, more like a sulky child.  Good to see some excellent running (as always) from Muddy and Skinny's first trophy 

DT - do you like offroad running?  Might be good to focus on something different for a bit where the numbers are not such a fixation.  You sound really jaded and frustrated with it all and you probably need to fall back in love with running again before the mojo comes back.  Lou's got some trail races in the calendar if you fancy a go.  

Update on me - foot is still not right.  Current thinking is that it is tendon damage from going over on it.  I have very prominent 5th metatarsals so all of that area is quite vulnerable on me. Anyway, had a few weeks of pretty much total rest and weekly ultrasound treatment and been cleared to start run walking to see how it goes.  Started that at the weekend and done 2 20 minute sessions so far. My foot is a bit sore afterwards and having to ice a lot but no sharp pains.  Got to build back up gradually and be ultra cautious with it I think. It's 5 and a bit weeks since I did the original injury and 4 weeks since I raced on it and buggered it properly. So in theory it should be mending.  Summer season of racing is pretty much a write off though which I am annoyed about. Might look for a half as late on in Autumn as possible - any ideas?
